Bleed out, suffocate, and die!

We take away the lives of animals like of cows and pigs daily. It is not appropriate to say only dolphin hunting is cruel.
- Yoshinobu Nisaka, the governor of Wakayama prefecture, where this 6 months nautic slaughter just got finished. The man's got a point. Then again with an argument like that, I could longitudinally saw a human baby in half and point my detractors to the fact that there are other cruel things happening in the world, so stop being so inappropriate and let me bathe in my innocent victim's fresh blood.

You know he's right. But not in the way he meant it.

We should get a new law passed. If you want to eat an animal with a central nervous system, it must be hunted one-on-one.

You can pay someone to do it or do it yourself. No mass killing, no industrial animals.

This will be beneficial for the vast majority of us. People will be physically healthier since they will eat more vegetables. People will be mentally healthier since there will be a better connection with whatever animal they are eating.

The environment that allows us to live will be healthier too since it will be slightly less raped thanks to no industrial livestock.

Democracy will be slightly healthier as mega food corporations will be cut off somewhat.

If you mean to say that a natural habitat can support 7,000,000,000 humans the way animal husbandry does, you might want to rethink your propositions. Raising cattle is an older institution than money itself. Industrial meat is an unfortunate perversion of that very human need to survive efficiently. Much like agriculture, this is what helped us thrive as a species. If you suggest that we regress to being hunters and gatherers, I cannot oppose you, as I do find the idea seductive. But brace yourself for mass starvation and conflict, old world styles. The ensuing democratic utopia could however be worth it when we'll all be isolated in our city states. So to summarize, I'm not necessarily against your idea of competitive eugenics, but I do like the idea of having a technologically advanced civilization where ideas are shared and man can potentially progress beyond it's earthbound nature. I don't think warring tribes can offer us that.

I think the problems you mention are based on the flawed assumption that we need to eat as much meat as we currently do. Industrial cattle raising is only efficient in a financial sense. It is inefficient in a biological sense. We are omnivores. Switching to a more plant-based diet will be beneficial to our health and our environment's health.
